De Toren Private Cellar is named after the tower in the cellar. The tower is unique in that all wine is moved by gravity by means of this tower and this forms the centre of our wine making philosophy.
Situated in the Polkadraai Hills in Stellenbosch, the winery is dedicated to the five Bordeaux varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot where the vineyards are planted in proportion to the blend of the wine .
De Toren Fusion V – a wine already recognised as a Cape Classic – is the flagship of the De Toren Private Cellar and is continually reaping accolades from all over the world.
De Toren Private Cellar was rated as one of the 20 best new wineries in the world- Food and Wine Magazine USA, November 2004
Over just six vintages, De Toren Fusion V has gathered the highest praise, both locally and internationally. The maiden vintage Fusion V 1999, was awarded an unprecedented 90 points by Robert Parker and Wine Spectator. The 2000, 2001, 2003, and 2004 vintages were all rated 91 points and the 2005 vintage 92 points by the influential Wine Spectator Magazine in the USA. The 2006 vintage received 5 stars in The influential John Platter Guide.
